Praise for With Regrets:
“Lee Kelly gives us a story that is both terrifying and poignant. Needless to say, I loved With Regrets—I think you will, too.”
—Christina Dalcher, Sunday Times bestselling author of Femlandia

“Compulsively readable . . . An exciting premise combined with a cast of very relatable characters add up to a book that is impossible to put down.”
—Jesse Q. Sutanto, bestselling author of Dial A for Aunties and Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers

With Regrets is a tense and claustrophobic look at what happens when an already uncomfortable dinner party is interrupted by a world-changing catastrophe. Told through four unique women trapped in a wine cellar, the book is a thrilling mix of dystopia, locked-in thriller, and family drama as the complex characters are forced to deal with fear, unraveling secrets, and the ultimate terror: being separated from loved ones when disaster strikes.”
—Darby Kane, bestselling author of The Last Invitation

“By turns harrowing and hilarious, With Regrets is a nail-biting page-turner that brings the apocalypse thrillingly close to home.” 
—Jennifer Thorne, author of Lute and Diavola

“Pulse-pounding and wildly original, With Regrets exposes the dark underbelly of suburbia and the true cost of keeping up appearances. Expertly crafted tension rachets up as a mysterious environmental threat looms large, but even more danger may lurk in the cellar in which these dinner companions find themselves trapped for the night. Lee Kelly has created a thrilling, nuanced, highly entertaining story that readers will find impossible to put down.” 
—Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here

Praise for Lee Kelly:
“Well-crafted and delightfully taut, A Criminal Magic is a wonderful piece of spellwork.”
—V.E. Schwab, New York Times bestselling author of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

“This urban fantasy, always electric, reads like jazz itself.”
Publishers Weekly, on A Criminal Magic

“There are plenty of heart-pounding moments in Kelly’s debut, and an abundance of vividly imagined details bring post-apocalyptic New York City to searing life.”
Publishers Weekly: A Most Anticipated Novel of Spring 2015, on City of Savages

“Kelly’s prose is gorgeous and brilliant.”
—VOYA, starred review, on City of Savages

“This is a solid, suspenseful, Prohibition-era crime story…a clever and very imaginative variant on a tried-and-true theme.”
—Booklist, on A Criminal Magic

“Better hope you clear off your calendar when you start Lee Kelly’s City of Savages, because you’re going to be white-knuckle gripped from page one. . . . It’s a thrilling apocalyptic story, for sure, but Kelly also imbues her story with the powers of familial bonds and some seriously strong women.” 

A Criminal Magic is a solid, well-written tale . . . but it’s the ending that is going to have everyone talking. The final plot twist is a punch in the gut.”

“Reminiscent of The Night Circus with a splash of The Great Gatsby.”
Romantic Times, on A Criminal Magic

“A Criminal Magic is a smart, absorbing read, with a deft take on Prohibition, engaging characters, and an utterly believable and fantastic version of magic that is as splendid as it is dangerous.”
—Kate Elliott, author of The Spiritwalker trilogy 

“Intriguing, exciting and unusual.”
—S.M. Stirling, author of the Change series, on City of Savages
